Abstract:

The vision which takes shape in this book is of a Christianity committed to making relevant the best that has been thought and written, and integrating that with the Christian faith. It is given us by a rarely gifted man who was alive and active with extraordinary power at an unusual number of points, and who saw disintegration and discreteness undermining the common sense, the spiritual community, the continuing Christian tradition of Western man. Touching upon life at many points, these reflections testify particularly to a Christian view of literature, education, and religion. - Jacket flap.
